Ruin Me 0.8.1 Now Public; 0.9.0 Up for Patrons

Version 0.8.1 is now free and adds:

  • A story event involving the Ritual of Agrat, which is available once Theresa’s stats are all at 2. It progresses the Byatis storyline and includes a weird sex ritual!
  • A change to the mirror in your bedroom to give a summary of your gender and appearance. You can retcon your skin color and change your gender there.
  • Tracking for the status of your chest: either you have breasts, or the game will refer to your “chest”. If you have an existing save, women with a vulva are set to have breasts and all others are assumed to have none.
  • The “Give Theresa a Spanking”, “Abuse Theresa While She Gives Manual Sex”, and “Receive Breast Play” play scenes. The lattermost scene is only available if you have breasts.
  • The Strange Laboratory mansion exploration, unlocked by spending Ken once Act 2 has begun. Note that at this point you have a method for gaining Ken faster. This location provides basic anatomy customization.
  • The ability to customize how Theresa greets you, done in her chambers under the new “propose a change” menu. She will now use a random greeting, chosen from the pool you select.
  • The ability to customize Theresa’s nightly routine, done in her chambers under the new “propose a change” menu. If you choose one, she will report on her progress the first time you meet her each day. The orgasm denial option can result in a brief scene if you’re lucky.
  • Nomenclature choices for Theresa’s breasts, your own breasts, and semen. I also reorganized the nomenclature menu under the “propose a change” menu.
  • A brief scene where your basic BDSM supplies are recovered, intended to occur during the Sadomasochism training sequence. If you’ve already finished that sequence, you’ll get the scene out-of-order the next time you’re in the mansion entryway.
  • A change to move the “Additional topic of education” option to inside the “Let’s work on your training” menu.
  • A facial cumshot state to Theresa’s kneeling pose (and an update to the Manual Sex training scenes to use it).
  • A change to make forms of address for Theresa lowercase when appropriate.
  • A revision to Theresa’s kneeling POV art from 0.8.0, to fix some anatomy and perspective issues.

  • A fix to a couple of lines of dialogue that were inconsistent with the menu text in the manual sex training.
  • A fix for a bug that let you pick training before you met the prerequisites.

This release includes:

  • The working exploration system, where you earn Ken that represents understanding of the Barrowport area and spend it to uncover new locations, scenes, and expeditions.
  • The new Farmer’s Offspring side event, available via exploring outside the town.
  • The new Impassable Passage expedition, available via exploring outside the town, which is Theresa-focused and explores voyeurism, claustrophobia, and group sex themes as well as giving some hints at broader story.  This also includes a new outfit that Theresa wears during the expedition! 
  • The new “Massage Theresa (Clothed)” play option, available in Theresa’s chambers once she has sufficient stats.
  • New stat requirements on play options where they were previously implicit.
  • A fix for the Mica Sign prompt being visible in Theresa’s chambers after that expedition is done.

This one arrived quickly, because I was working on it while setting up the blog and other sites. The next version might take a month or longer, but once that lands, this version will be available for free on Itch:
